Brisbane Broncos superstar Kotoni Staggs is being investigated by the NRL over alleged drunken behaviour just a day after an Eels player was embroiled in a sex tape scandal.

Channel 9’s Danny Weidler reported the NRL Integrity Unit is in the process of reviewing footage of Staggs allegedly involved in drunken behaviour recently.

Channel 7’s Chris Garry then revealed Staggs faces suspension after a woman made a complaint about his behaviour at a Brisbane venue.

“NRL are investigating. No criminal or assault allegations. Staggs record is what could lead to suspension,” he tweeted.

Weidler revealed Staggs has been accused of making unwelcome advances towards a woman, but police are not involved.

Staggs was hit with a breach notice by the NRL following an altercation at a pub in Dubbo in November 2020.

The 22-year-old wasn’t charged over the incident at the Commercial Hotel, though two of his friends pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm.

The revelation comes just a day after it was reported the NRL were investigating an Eels player’s involvement in a new sex tape scandal.

On Wednesday, The Daily Telegraph reported the NRL’s Integrity Unit had launched an investigation into the sex tape allegedly involving a current rugby league star.

The video of the act shows a man and woman engaging in sex in a public toilet. It appears to be filmed over the toilet door by a bystander.

“The Club has become aware of a video involving one of its players,” the Parramatta Eels said in a statement.

“We understand that those on the video have been illegally filmed without consent and that an attempt has been made to distribute the video to media outlets and on social media platforms.”

Staggs is currently out injured and is not due back from a knee injury until mid-season.

The 22-year-old has not played a game yet this year after suffering an ACL injury late last season.

Off-contract at the end of the 2021 season, Staggs is currently locked in negotiations with the Broncos with a reported $2.8 million four-year deal on the table.

The Broncos are in the box seat to sign Staggs after the Titans pulled their offer to the prodigious centre.

Courier Mail journalist Peter Badel tweeted: “Titans have pulled their offer to Kotoni Staggs. Broncos close in on $2.8 million upgrade for Staggs to stay at Red Hill. Gold Coast officially OUT.”

Staggs has scored 23 tries in 47 games for the Broncos since his debut in 2018 and was set to debut for the Blues in origin last year before injury ruled him out of the series.
